Synthes is a horrible place to work if you seek to be promoted or try to imrove things

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
West Chester, PA

I worked at Synthes

ProsSynthes is fine to work at as an entry-level person or in a terminal position such as admin, IT help desk, etc. The hours are good, benefits fine and facilities are decent. It is also a decent place to work if you have no ambition and like to work under the radar screen.

ConsExecutive management at this place is absolutely the worst. The few people who try to imrove things are either beaten down verbally or pushed out the door. Promotions at the upper levels are reserved for friends of the founder or Board or for "Yes Men" that have no soul. Be careful about coming here as I understand they are very aggressive about non-competes even though they have no problem hiring people from competitors. In this economy you have to take the jobs that are available, but check around with former employees and see if you can find any that have fond memories of the place.

Advice to Senior ManagementAdvice to management is of no value because they do not listen to employees anyway. They seem to feed on making people feel stupid or insecure.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
